Market Prep…almost done

I am so sorry for ignoring this blog and keeping you informed of what is going on with me and the shop…but when its Market time and your fabric arrives late on Wednesday (15th)and you need to cut piece and appliqué 3 quilts to be shipped out the the next week (21st) so they can be quilted sent back, bound and photographed for patterns and brochures.  There isn’t enough time to do much.  I even had help with Amy making all the HST’s for Triangle Gathering….Its also not very glamorous…sometimes its a few days between hairdos but I always soak in the tub each night after sitting for so many hours and stitching.  So this is the story of why the neglect…Oh…and I hope you are all liking out new website for Primitive Gatherings…still a little more work to do but I can’t believe all the features it has and it will take us a bit to learn it all…If you have had problems with not getting to our site…please type in your browser Primitive Gatherings and remove the old cached one in your bookmark and add the new one.  We also have sent out a post from the shop about all the techy stuff you can do, as our site uses the latest technology.

IMG_0442The week before this I was working on new wool appliqué designes…I was bummed because when I was on FB and Instagram everyone was stitching on Autumn stuff and I was working on Spring and Flowers…New projects for Fall Market so shops can buy our designs make them and have them ready for Spring and Summer…Well…I snuck in a new Fall one…Here is Pumpkin Farm…pumpkin farm/primitive gatherings


This is what is looks like when I first start stitching… I just drew the branches on the trees and have them stem stitched…pumpkin farm/lisa bongean


Then here it is after having one side done…see how it comes to life with the small details you can do with a needle and thread?  Lazy daisy fall leaves…falling off the tree and piling on the ground…the mums are blooming, the fire is lit in the Pumpkin house and the geese are starting to fly south…over the harvest moon…

photo-both sides stitched. The size is 10×30…Notice the cool background wool?  This is a limited background that we will only have for the first kits we make….I love the added interest it adds.  If you want, I say want because I know you don’t need to have another projects…but this one is fun to stitch!  Here is the link to our website for kit and pattern info.  Pumpkin Farm

I will try to keep posting about the other projects…Happy Sunday and Go Packers!lisabongean/pumpkin farm

    Great new Fall pattern!
    How do you keep all of the balls in the air for everything you juggle? I can’t imagine that kind of stress!

    Love the pattern. The extra stitches really bring it alive. But what is it with the blue pumpkins/gourds?

    Lisa Just wanted to let you know that my “Words to Live by” took a second inn category and Viewer’s Choice at the Rock Valley Quilt Guild show the first of the month. I never enter shows but this time all my friends and husband I had to or else
    Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration , Quilty Hugs, Maddy

      Congratulations Maddy! I just want you know that viewers choice is a big deal. “Shows are difficult because you’re asking one person to judge and it comes down to basically their likes and dislikes. This will determine first second and third and so on.

    OMG.. You wear me out with your crazy schedule! 🙂 It is so appreciated though. You are so amazing and when I met you in Paducah, it literally changed my life! I was so unaware of all the wonderfully beautiful work you do. You opened a whole new world to me. It’s my therapy and I hope you know how you inspired me personally. I would love to find a way to share your talents with my friends, as we have no woolie shops here in my area. You are a friend to all and you are definitely an inspiration to me as I’m sure you know. My prayers are with you and your very special journey ♥ Thank you again, Lisa….for everything! My friends and I are going to try to plan a trip to WI this year. We have to put in for our vacation time in late Dec. Just wondering when you will be posting your class schedule for 2015? I would say, that depending on what classes we can sign up for, is when we will come. You try to get some rest and thank you again for sharing your very creative mind with all of us ♥ 🙂
